Crank Brothers rolls out U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross Series, Version 2.0

On the heels of a successful inaugural year, title-sponsor Crank Brothers has returned for a second helping of North America’s most dynamic cycling series: the 2005 U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross Series. The six-race series, starting October 8 in Portland, Ore., will make stops in the thriving hotbeds of American cyclocross throughout the fall season, with the overall series champions crowned November 20 in San Francisco, CA.

“The great reception and great racing in last year’s U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross series set the bar high,” said Series Marketing Director Bruce Fina. “Together with the country’s best promoters and visionary cyclocross sponsors, we are looking forward to an exceptional second edition of this national cycling series.”

"The U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross is so valuable to us, that we wanted to be a part of it again the second year,” said Christina Orlandella, Marketing Director of Crank Brothers. “We were so pleased with the outcome last year. Crank Brothers is happy to continue to support the sport of cyclocross as a whole."

The Crank Brothers U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross Series schedule for 2005:

All six races will be held under UCI category and competition regulations. U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross Series leaders will be recognized at the conclusion of each event with leaders’ jerseys.

Overall winners in the Elite Men, Elite Women, U-23, and Junior Men categories will receive automatic selection to the World Cyclocross Championships in Zeddam, The Netherlands, January 28-29, 2006. Master 35+ Men will also be ranked.
